Bedtime Stories is a collection of short tales that left me feeling warm and fuzzy. Each one was designed to be read before bed and was structured so the reader would end on a peaceful note for some sweet dreams. It definitely achieved its goals. I loved it and will read this again.
Whiskey Wishes by Anna Martin
I really loved the writing style, point of view, and tone of this story. It was fast paced and easy to read. The writing gave a very humorous feel to this romance. And a romance it was. From random meeting, to coming out, to falling in love, and finally reaching a long term happy partnership. This was a well written and enjoyable read.
Flickers by Tia Fielding
What a cool story idea. A man buys a painting which comes with a ghost attached. This ghost leads him to his HEA! He meets the artist who created the painting, they get to know one another, fall in love, and live HEA. It was another well done and enjoyable story in this anthology.
Click Your Heels Three Times by Blaine D. Arden
This was another cool story about being trapped inside a mirror and using magic to get free. True love keeps the Prince from going insane while trapped and keeps his constantly looking for escape. It was an interesting read with a nice HEA.
Frangipani Kisses by Liam Livings
I really enjoyed this story. It was not the typical romantic HEA but instead a HEA based on life fulfillment and job satisfaction. It featured an already established couple who are still madly in love and who support each other through the tough times. This was a great look at a different aspect of a relationship and was my favorite of this anthology.
Charmed by MJ O’Shea
I really liked this one too. It was a story of a man changing his outlook on relationships after he meets his “soul mate.” It was cute to see him being wooed instead of just hopping into bed and finding the value in the little things. It was a very good start to a relationship. However, the ending was rather abrupt and left me feeling confused. Maybe this is the prologue to a future story?
Torch by kit Mullender
I had a hard time reading this one. The writing was in the present tense which is not my natural thought process when reading, so I had to concentrate to get through the story. That being said, the it was cute. One man finding out the man of his dreams is actually the co-worker he has issues with. I liked the story itself very much.
Miles to go by B. Snow
This was a story of a guy discovering he is gay after his wife points it out to him. He steadfastly denies the claim and goes on disastrous date after disastrous date only to return home feeling like he proved his point once again. However, things sneak up on him and finally in a “light bulb” moment, he realizes it is true and realizes that his sons babysitter had gotten under his skin. It was very fun to watch and I hope these men have a wonderful HEA. Will there be more later or is the HEA left to the reader’s imagination?
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
